As the title says. The TOP 25 games in my collection. They aren't necessarily the games that are rated or ranked the highest. They are the games that would remain if I had to trim my collection down to 25.

I am making this list more as a personal reference, but feel free to add to the comment section if you like with your top 20 games.

Along with Strikers expansion and War of Indines thrown in, provides the ultimate 2D fighting game experience in board game format. It also helps that the game has a ton of different play modes. Used to be torn between this and Yomi, but believe you get much better bang for your buck with this game.

Nice lite war-game that rewards aggressive play rather than defensive play. Board is interesting in that it is balanced even though it looks like it isn't. A great blend of euro with ameritrash.

I enjoy the diminishing powers as you get injured mechanic. It raises the tension as the game progresses.

A sci-fi dungeon crawl where the cards you have represent the life points you have. Cool game with some really tough choices sometimes.

Along with the 1st expansion for providing that perfect game where it is about playing the people you are playing against. It is a game about politics and backstabbing. This game balances itself out through the players that play it.

This along with the White Moon expansion provides a terrific co-op experience. The game is complicated enough where discussion is encouraged. The White Moon expansion makes the game much more satisfying from a thematic standpoint.

Along with expansion, provides a rich area-control game with a heavy dose of worker placement. Game looks innocent and friendly, but can be quite the opposite. One of the better 2-player games in my opinion. I can see how some could be turned off by the dummy characters, but I like to think of them as vital resources to be controlled.

A thematic superhero game where you battle a villain or villains in some environment with a bunch of superheroes. A fun co-op game where the heroes all play differently and have to work as a team in order to succeed.

Because the expansion can be it's own standalone game, I am not including it together.

My gateway game of choice. Everyone understands roll and move, and most people hate it; yet, this game does a good job of making it enjoyable by utilizing the cards as well.
